What not to bring:
When you arrive at the College, the RLs and admin staff will be available to take you to your room and to show you around.
Residents should go to the Office to pick up their room keycard, which they willl sign for, and their room check form.
There is no accommodation available for friends or family on Opening day, or during the first week of the year. We recommend family make bookings at nearby motels or hotels. Family and friends are welcome to come and help residents move in and tea and coffee will be available, along with a BBQ on opening day.
Salmond will have a busy programme during the opening week so that residents can meet each other and start making friends. We recommend residents stay in College as much as possible and make the most of opportunities to meet with other residents and get a feel for College life.
It is important that residents feel at home in their rooms. Anything that makes their space more comfortable is always welcome e.g. cushions, throws, framed photos, lights, posters, etc. (please note that only genuine Blutac can be used - no nails, screws sellotape, drawing pins, etc. are allowed).
On Opening Day, there will be an address from the Head of College and other staff to any parents who would like to attend. This will cover a number of facets of College life.
Residents always appreciate care packs throughout the year and these can be couriered directly to Salmond. The address is:
19 Knox Street
North East Valley
Residents will be notified when parcels, home baking, flowers arrive for them. Please ensure packages are clearly labelled with the correct name.
